    One thought on “Adventures in Bookbinding: Handcrafting Mixed-Media Books”

    1. I enjoyed seeing some of the unusual techniques the author used to create these books. And I thought it was cool/clever that, for each book, the author provided regular directions, shortcut directions, and "master" directions.

    2. Why limit yourself to binding books with just paper? In Adventures in Bookbinding, Jeanine Stein, author of the wonderful Re-bound, shows you how you can make books from a variety of mixed media including polymer clay, fabric, felt, yarn. You're free to take the short-cut route and use finished materials you already have (for instance, an old quilt for the quilted book project) or make everything from scratch - create your own quilted, woven or needle-felted cover; alter a book with brass bezel, [...]

    3. Adventures in Book Binding was the perfect book to get me rolling. It had just enough information to educate me on the basics, but it didn't feel like a book meant for fourth-graders. I had no experience in book binding whatsoever (though I have years of craft experience), and now I feel like I'm ready to take off.The beginning has information about tools, materials, adhesive, paper, and lots of other information. Each project has the fully explained version, a "Shortcut" idea and blurb for a mo [...]

    4. My favorite resource book on this topic so far, and man--is that a great title, or what?! The instructions were clear and I could follow them simply by reading closely, which is something that I often struggle with when reading pattern directions; usually I need to follow along in order to understand something like sewing a binding. I liked many of the projects in the book, and most of them looked rather utilitarian in addition to being works of art; I almost always appreciate practicality.

    5. I'm not a big fan of Ms. Stein's particular style of bookmaking, but both this and her other book on book-making, Re-bound, offer some interesting ideas for using unusual materials to create unique books. I especially like the galleries that feature works from other book artists. Great photographic illustrations and precise tutorials for the book projects.

    6. Adventures in Bookbinding: Handcrafting Mixed-Media Books by Jeannine Stein (Quarry Books 2011)(686.3) is a "how-to" book about craft projects involving various simple forms of bookbinding. It is not applicable to one who wishes to craft a binding for an actual book of more than a few pages. My rating: 5/10, finished 5/21/12.

    7. Out of the boxThere isn't anything standard about the combination of binding methods and materials used in creating books, which is why I love this book. This book offers various ideas to build upon and it shows that anything goes when it comes to one's unique personal styles and imagination, which takes books to another level and transforms them into works of art.

    8. This book has some good ideas, but it isn't very detailed. I plan to try out some of books. The steps don't look ultra detailed, so we will see how it goes. The author does caution that this book is geared toward experienced crafters. I picked it up more for instruction on binding techniques.

    9. I loved how the book offered similar projects at various levels. For someone like me, I like projects to be achieved fairly quickly and with the "shortcut" ones I am able to do this. People with more skill/time have projects offered at their level as well! Great photos and creative projects!

    10. Good bookbinding book and although I probably won't make any of the untraditional books (polymer clay, quilted, or crochet covers) a few bindings and instructions make it worth the price of the book. My favorite book is the one recycling an old book.

    11. Some decent techniques but all in all, the projects are so lame. Sorry. They just scream crafts and home made, and that's not a compliment.
